For Beta and Gamma Radiation
This Tabletop Shield provides protection while working with mid to low-energy beta and gamma radioactive materials. The shield is designed to resist tipping and incorporate shielding overlap to eliminate radiation streaming. The entire interior work surface is one continuous piece of steel for easy clean up and decontamination.
The front wall of the shield is constructed of .5" (1.2 cm) thick lead and completely encased with powder-coated steel. A lead glass window (2 mm LE) and a Plexiglas® panel are included. This shielding combination attenuates gamma and beta radiation, and errant bremsstrahlung, with unimpaired viewing of the work area. An optional 2 mm LE lead glass window is available to achieve 4.0 mm lead equivalency.
Optional side and bottom shields offer additional protection. Manufactured to be durable, the Beta/Gamma Tabletop Shield is framed in steel with a powder-coat finish.
